Edward is an asshole. He has been having sex how long and Carlisle had to teach him foreplay? Also slapping a small woman on the day of corrination not expecting to mark her? Plus the pleasure he just gave her could have been given on the wedding night instead of tearing her inside and out. Thank god for Emmett because that poor girl is fucked. Henry in Tudors was nicer and that's saying something. I am always an Edward and Bella fan only but I can't stand behind this git historical or not.

As much as I enjoyed Esme and Carlisle finding their feeling returned by the other and explored their physical side of it. I don't think the timing was right, with Bella being in such an ill state.
Glad Bella has recovered and she and Edward, with their children are moving forward to their happy ever after.
I'm wondering why the culprits wasn't dealt with as soon as they returned to court. I thought Victoria would be behind the transgression of the King and Queen, since James made an attemted to kill Bella while she was with child.

After Edward found out why Bella had written Tanya, why didn't he take action against the Stanley's for opening 'royal' mail? He also needs to address Renee since he saw her strike the queen.
Edward didn't seem to happy about having a girl. Poor Bella. Hope she gets to raise her daughter as she wants.

Charles is not worthy of Bella calling him father. Threatening a child to get her to do his bidding, pathetic. I only wished Jasper and James had overheard his threats and reported back to Edward.
Edward needs to get a grip on his behavior.

Edward could have been a little more caring of Bella's needs since it was her first time. Can't see her wanting a repeat of that.
Renee is the worst mother. Maybe Edward will overhear how she speaks to his new Queen, and deal with her accordingly.
Don't see Lady Stanley like be rebuffed by Edward.

It's official. I don't care for Lady Bella's parents. Renee and Charles are pitiful human beings. Her brothers seem to be the only ones that truly care for her.
Maybe the abuse and cruelty she has endured from her parents should be let known to King Edward.

I don't like Sir James. He seems to enjoy seeing others grief stricken and/or in pain. Advising Edward to pass judgement on someone close to Lady Bella will cause her to hate him. Hopefully King Edward will soften as the story proceeds.

Though I'm not surprised by King Edward's forwardness and attraction to Lady Bella. I am surprised that Queen Tanya has excepted and encouraged Lady Bella in the situation.
I have a feeling the Stanley's will be a pain the royal derriere.

Only one chapter in and a lot has transpired. King Edward seemed especially cruel for something Queen Tanya had no control over, but alas I understand his need for a wife that can bore him an heir to the throne.
I don't think I've ever read a historical story where Bella was Tanya's lady in waiting.

The King and Queen's lovemaking? Now that's more like it.
Renee slapping Bella? I hope Edward banishes the evil Lady Swan.
Edward's reaction to the baby? I hope he never gets a boy.
A midwife and her fingernail? I'd poke her in the eye.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful wonderful story with us. I loved reading the whole thing. It was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun writing it, even if the research was gruelling but that's mainly down to me wanting weird things to be exact and realistic. Thanks for reading and reviewing!

This was a fitting ending to a wonderful story especially considering your health;) Thank you so much for letting me take this journey with your wonderful and sometimes flawed characters;) It was wonderful to see Edward grow up from the selfish, womanizing jerk who only considered his own pleasures to the selfless and wonderfully considerate husband he was to Isabella;)
Isabella's fears that Edward would stop desiring her while her love grew brighter was certainly laid to rest completely and utterly by him. It is so sad just knowing that she had to mourn him for so many years before joining him in their eternal life the engraved plaque was so fitting about them. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story with us and hopefully we will get to read something more from you, your health permitting ofcourse;) I truly enjoyed reading this wonderful story and wish you all the best in the future;)
Thank you so much darling! I couldn't have done it without the support of all my amazing and wonderful readers. I'm glad you liked this final chapter and felt it a fitting end. The plaque was one of the first images that popped into my head when this story first began to unfold in my mind. I have started writing a new story (for MTV's Teen Wolf) but it's posted on my FanFiction and AO3 accounts. It's called A Little Helping Hand if you want to give it a go, if you like Teen Wolf. It'll be very different to this story, thankfully not as much research.
Anyway, thank you so much for the lovely review and I'm glad to have had you for a reader.
